We visited the Billngs Farm for their 4th of July event. It was really quite good. There were lots of things for both adults and children to do. We also took tours of the actual building which was also fasticating

We live in Norwich, Vermont, and for years we had a yearly membership at Billings Farm so we could take our young children there whenever we wanted. We spent many hours there exploring the farmhouse, sampling cider, watching the cows be milked, petting the calves, walking around the grounds, visiting the museum exhibits, enjoying learning about the history of the...

Learned a lot about farming, forestry, and natural beauty. They have activities from learning to sheer sheep, to going on a winter sleigh ride. There is something interesting to do for all ages!

I never lived on a farm. I liked the opportunity to get an up-close experience. The people that presented information in each barn did a great job, and I had ample time to ask questions after their talk. I know this type of farm was quite different than the typical farm of its day, but I still had a great... More

We recently visited the Billings Farm over the Christmas break. What a picturesque farm to visit in winter! Our four kids (ages 5, 7, 7, 9) had a great time making hand-dipped candles, riding the horse-drawn sleigh, drinking hot spiced cider (free), riding Jack-Jumpers (a single ski with a seat), and, of course, seeing the cows and horses and other...

We saw cattle, chickens, sheep and learned a lot about how the family who settled Woodstock lived. Make sure to ask a lot of questions at the owner's house. Very fun and educational spot!

Our 1-year old daughter loved the barns and carriage ride. The staff was extremely friendly. Next time I'd like to spend more time exploring the museum

Visited with cousins and kids in October 2013. We had planned a drive from Boston to Vermont to see Fall colors and also for my lovely nieces to see the Farm. And exactly as expected the Billings farm was a great way to spend the sunny day. The farm people are very courteous and nice, and show around the animals... More
